Auto Accident Injury Lawyer Kansas City, MO
If you’ve been injured in an accident, it’s important to connect with an auto accident injury lawyer Kansas City, MO residents trust before speaking with any insurance representatives. If you’ve already spoken with an insurance representative (from your own insurance company and/or a company that governs a policy held by someone else involved in your accident), don’t panic. However, as soon as you can, schedule a free case evaluation with our firm. While you’re certainly more than capable of speaking with an insurance representative on your own without guidance or representation, it will be very difficult (through absolutely no fault of your own but by insurance industry design) for you to obtain a fair settlement without allowing a Kansas City, MO auto accident injury lawyer to handle the negotiation “heavy lifting” on your behalf.
Do I Need a Lawyer to File an Auto Accident Insurance Claim?
One of the main reasons why it’s important to seek representation before negotiating with an insurance provider is that even the slightest variations in word choice can make or break a settlement offer situation. Meaning, unless you choose your words extremely carefully, an insurance representative will choose to interpret them in the ways that best benefit the company’s bottom line. If you admit to any fault without context, indicate that you’re not able to recall the slightest detail, or you have any variations in the ways you answer the same questions over time, those choices could affect your ability to obtain the maximum amount of compensation to which you’re entitled.
Second, insurance companies are just that – companies. If they can find a way to lower your settlement amount or pass their liability onto another party (possibly you), they will. Our firm negotiates with insurance carriers all the time and we know how to get around their tricks of the trade.
Legal Assistance Is Available
Regardless of whether you think you’d like to file legal action against anyone else who may have been involved in your collision, it’s important to connect with the experienced Missouri legal team at Royce Injury Attorneys LLC as soon as you can in the wake of your collision. The very act of negotiating with insurance providers is something best left to experienced personal injury attorneys, only because insurance companies will almost always deny accident victims the maximum amount of compensation to which they are entitled unless they’re represented by an experienced attorney. This is not an ideal scenario. In a perfect world, policy holders and accident victims affected by the actions of policy holders would be offered truly fair settlements as a matter of course. Unfortunately, insurance companies are businesses invested in protecting their bottom line. As a result, it’s generally a good idea to seek legal representation for insurance negotiation purposes even if you’re not planning on filing a personal injury suit in the wake of your accident.
Please protect your rights to receive the maximum amount of compensation to which you are owed by scheduling a free case evaluation with our firm’s Kansas City, MO auto accident injury lawyer team today; we look forward to speaking with you.
